              Extraordinary! ”

              The proprietor, "Noddy", went out of his way to assist with every request. He even dropped us at the bus stop in his private vehicle at no charge, at what was an unusually early hour. I cannot speak too highly of this place. We were treated like friends, rather than customers. If you are looking for a place to stay in Picton, South Island, look no further. A huge nod to Noddy and his wife. Superb.

              Harbour View NOT Harbour Edge”

              Don't be deceived by the pictures, this motel is about a quarter mile from the harbor shore. If you are walking from the ferry or train station, it is a walk of several city blocks and about 20 minutes. Once you arrive at they motel, it is situated on a bluff overlooking the harbor (although not next to the harbour), and you have to drag luggage up a very steep incline. The hotel is overpriced for the furnishings. The lower rooms share a deck with dividers, so if someone is smoking outside, you will experience their smoke. The rooms are large and very clean, but the furnishings are cheap and minimal. The beds in our room showed indentations and were lumpy. Diane, at check-in, was very friendly and offered us a small bottle of milk for our tea and coffee. In addition, she gave us a ride to the train station because it was raining heavily at our departure. A MAJOR NEGATIVE is check out is at 10 AM. The train station doesn't even open its' doors until noon! Not a place for an extended

              Harbour View Motel is just a walking distant to the city center and the only supermarket in town. If you are a sport fan, there are plenty of Sport channels. The only issue is the shower water pressure which is a pity.

              clean rooms, view of the wharf, staff service

              We were in Picton for just a short period to catch the ferry the next day to Wellington. We chose this hotel because of its location, but also wanted a clean modern room with great views, and sure enough, we got what we wanted. The rooms were clean, lots of cooking supplies and the views on the balcony was great. The staff/owner also dropped us off at the Ferry terminal the next morning. The hotel is walking distance to town and hiking trail, although Picton is a very small town. High water pressure. Good value for money. CONS: Parking is tight with limited space. There are 2 buildings. Some rooms have better views that others. Free wifi but kept getting disconnected.

              We stopped over in Picton to catch the ferry up North the following day. The greeting we received at Harbour View Motel was warm and friendly. The room was very clean and very thoughtfully set up. The amenities were very nice as well. The only problem we experienced was one of the window couldn't be closed properly and the room became drafty for our daughter who was sleeping on the sofa bed which was next to the window.

              My husband and I loved our stay in the Harbour View Motel. We got a room on the top floor, the view was astonishing. The room was clean and comfortable, they thought about everything, including a small table and chairs outside to have a glass of wine and enjoy the afternoon. The kitchen is small but has everything you need to cook a meal (we were tired of fried food so we cook steak and vegetables). Convenient place to park the car in front of the room. Walking distance to the grocery store, the bay, and the ferry terminal. The location was perfect. I recommend staying at this place if you are visiting Picton.

              This was a great place to stay in Picton. The room was great with a small kitchenette which is handy. We had a really nice deck with wonderful view of Picton Harbor. It was a 5 minutes walk to get into the town and some nice shops and restaurants and groceries. Also so convenient to catch boat out to Queen Charlotte Track for great hiking. also Only a 30 mins to Havlock for some wonderful mussels. Don’t miss this hotel.

              Best Hotel/Motel Service on our Trip to NZ”

              Of all the hotels we stayed at on our recent trip to NZ, Harbour View stood out. The lodging is only about 5 minutes from the InterIslander Ferry site. Caryn, the owner was kind enough to even pick us up since we didn't know exactly where the motel was located. Saved 40.00 on taxis because each hotel room in Wellington & Auckland we needed to take a taxi! The hospitality and cleanliness of the room was fantastic especially after our stays at certain hotels in the cities just mentioned. The experience brought up a lot of youthful memeories. Thanks Caryn & Noddy for the hospitality!

              The appeal of this accommodation was the closeness to where we caught the Cougar Line water Taxi to the start of our 5 day tramp. In addition to this it was great to be shown to our room by, who I assume was, one of the owners who explained how to use the TV and where to find the access code for the wifi. The motel was in easy walking distance to the main street where we went for dinner and breakfast
